The perfect ending is everyone loyal and everyone survives. I had the perfect ending on my first playthrough too, and I got the achievement for level 30 right at the very end. I'm the only person I know that managed to get it in one playthrough (not sure it can be done without the DLC). Now THAT is what you call a completionist whore.

Well, I just picked up ME2 on thursday and have played to the point where you meet Sheen's charachter. Like the way you can view your Shephard from multiple angles while creating the face. I'd hoped for something like that.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't you technically get it without doing everyone's loyalty missions? Unless there's a special ending if you do.... Because I didn't do all the loyalty missions, but not everyone died.

You can change the angles in the first one, it's just a horrible system and the lighting sucks.

TBH, I don't know, because on every one of my four playthroughs, I've done all the loyalty missions. I suspect that the people you use at the end for the choices you have to make at least need to be loyal, not sure about the rest.

I love what they did with Tali in ME2. She was probably my least favorite character in the first game, but in the second I dropped everything I was doing with Miranda and boarded the Tali bandwagon >.>

Since my other netbook, an EEEPC 1000hd got its screen cracked the other day and replacements cost too much, I opted to upgrade:



I loved my last one and it was the perfect size for a laptop, although it only got about three hours of battery life watching video. This will change all that.

Streetlight Manifesto - 99 Songs of Revolution: Volume I


Even if these are simply covers of songs, they're covers of songs as done by Streetlight Manifesto, and considering their last full cd was in 2007, I'm f***ing ecstatic.

Very good thing: Finally getting my family's income tax return check in the mail, 3-4 weeks after we were supposed to have it.

This is such a huge mood lift, you have no idea. We're supposed to be out of this place by the end of the month, and this check was the only thing keeping us from being able to get into a new place.

It's family tradition for everyone to splurge on one thing with the tax return while we use the rest for bills/savings for family trips/other important things, and this year is no exception.

I just preordered the Deluxe Hardcover edition of this:


Which comes with the cd itself of course, a sort of Making Of DVD, and this:


A 352 page novel of the story of the CD.

For those of you who don't know, each Coheed CD has told a part of what's known as The Amory Wars, and both their first released cd (Second Stage Turbine Blade) and their third cd (Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness) both had comics release showing the story. They've also been a large hassle, with us fans still waiting for them to do one for In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3 and No World For Tomorrow, as well as a supposed remake of Burning Star IV. So this time, Cluadio said f*** it, and just wrote a novel alongside writing the album, and including it with the deluxe edition of the cd.

tl;dr it needs to be April 12th like right now.

EDIT: Amazon released an image of the full package:


Squee!

I think artists writing fictional books around their albums should be a more common event. Though, in the case of Mastodon's Leviathan, they'd just include a copy of Moby-Dick with way more metal cover art.

Indeed. I always had the theatrical versions on DVD, and only after all these years I suddenly decided to buy the extended editions. Since I still don't have a Blu-Ray player yet, I bought the DVD versions. I guess the Blu-Ray versions will come out when "The Hobbit" movie arrives in theaters.

I'm getting to where I wait for the multi-disk Blu-ray ultimate extended special complete collector's gold edition of everything before I actually buy it. That means it'll be awhile till I pick up Avatar or the LotR+Hobbit on Blu-ray. Things are getting even more complicated with all the 3D stuff coming out now, but I don't expect I'll even bother with that for a very long time.

How much are you planning on overclocking that thing?!??

Why not just go straight to the liquid nitrogen?

Whoa. Cool Anthony--how many CFM are each of those fans?

@edlib: There is a liquid cooling option and I have seen many an impressive getup for custom machines. If you ever need an alternative use for a radiator or a transmission cooler, this makes a good alternate use.

Parts of the budget were very good today. For me anyway.

Quote:
Stamp Duty scrapped for homes below £250,000 for first-time buyers
It was 1% on homes over £125,000.

Should mean I have an extra £1,300 in my bank account when I move into my new home in a week or so (I'm hoping to complete before the end of the month).

Combined CFM is around 102. Later on I may replace the noctua fans (which are really nice and dont really need replacing) with 150cfm delta fans (that is..150cfm for each fan.) Problem is, theyre louder than an f-16 taking off around 8000rpm

I plan to have at LEAST a 4.2ghz overclock, if not a little higher if the temps hold.

Love how the guy is using a salvaged refrigerator compressor. Those things are amazing, and you could even run it in reverse as a vacuum pump.

Hmm. Not bad. Not bad.

I don't know if Comair Rotron brand is any quieter, but they do make all kinds of heavy duty fans for removing massive amounts of heat. Look them up, I'm sure you might find something good. I have one of their DC fans I'm using for an electronic project, and I think it is rated at 235 CFM. Not really quiet, but it certainly cools!

I plan to have at LEAST a 4.2ghz overclock, if not a little higher if the temps hold.
Wait--4.2 gigs?! Hot Damn. Forgive my rant but, for your consideration to shopping around for that project:

For a heatsink compound: Arctic Silver, or Antec 5. THE BEST 2 brands out there I have ever seen. (Usually at Fry's electronics.) $20-30 for a single tube and these are 99.9% silver compound.

Next, there's all sorts of approaches to liquid cooling. Maybe consider buying a 'transmission oil cooler', or similar mini-radiator that J.C. Whitney sells in various sizes for fairly good prices. Try eBay auto stores as well, namely look for the Dana-Long brand.

For fans, heat sinks, enclosures, and accessories you might check out places that sell to pro's (and hobbyists) at factory wholesale prices:
http://www.alliedelec.com
www.Mouser.com (They send you a big thick catalog for FREE if you buy from them more than once within a month.)
www.digikey.com
www.newark.com

Also these electronic surplus stores sell this kind of stuff. Check back from time to time as their stock always changes and you could end up with a steal of a deal.

www.goldmine-elec.com
www.electronicsurplus.com/

Best of luck and happy hunting.
